The post below is several years old, but somehow I get at least one person per 24 hours that ends up here by Googling for something related to Sushi and Publix. Comments on this post were disabled for a long time since it was from an older version of my website. I actually don’t even live in Florida anymore, but fortunately I’m still close to my favorite grocery store and still enjoy Publix Sushi from time to time.
From the looks of the comments so far, it looks like most of you are searching for nutritional facts on Publix Sushi. I thought about asking for them at the store, but I decided to do a little research first. I remembered that the branding on all of the sushi is “Southern Tsunami” so I checked, and sure enough, they have a website: http://www.afcsushi.com While they used to have the nutritional information for their products on their website. It looks like this isn’t the case anymore. You can, however, find the nutrition information for most of Southern Tsunami’s creation over at the Diet Facts website. Now I know that my Dragon Roll tray has 507 calories and 18g of fat. Not too bad compared to a Joey Bag of Donuts from Moes at 1121 calories and 29g of fat. But…not great compared to a 6 inch sweet onion chicken teriyaki from subway at 370 calories with only 5g of fat. Anyway, hope that research was helpful.
For those of you wondering how to make sushi, my friend Adrian posted a Sushi Tutorial on her site. (As seen in the comments below.) I still haven’t tried her tutorial yet but I did buy a “MAGIC julienne slicer” already and hope to get to it one of these days.
The original (very short) post from June 2, 2004:
Publix is the best grocery store EVER! Sure, other grocery stores are ok – except for maybe Win Dixie, but if the choice is available, I go to Publix. They always have the cleanest stores, the freshest produce, and the best selection of regular products. Some stores like Walmart Supercenters (which don’t exist here in Gainesville) can beat Publix prices, but when it comes to shopping experience, you get what you pay for.
I guess I’m on this little advertising rant because I’m on my lunch break enjoying my tray of fresh spicy rolls from the sushi department. MMmm. What other grocery store has a fresh sushi section? The only thing I’m not so sure of is if rice is on the diet that Amy and I are on.
